Ants Murakin (1892–1975)


Ants Murakin was a diverse artist who was in his early thirties at the time he completed this work. He had acquired an education in art in Estonia, Hungary and Austria and was also active in literature in addition to art, including translation. It is difficult to identify particular creative periods in Murakin’s case. Before the war, he was a painter of landscape paintings on more or less pervasive postimpressionist subjects from his Estonian homeland.
